Failing Forward!!

I recd a mail on the subject frm a dear friend of mine (MuraliKrishnan - a.k.a MK) and i must say, i was absolutely thrilled to read it. It talks about:
> "Failing forward"
> 7 things failure is NOT
> 7 abilities needed to fail FORWARD
> Benefits of ADVERSITY
> Traps that make people back away from RISKS
> Questions that you should ask to LEARN from your FAILURE
> Top-10 reasons people FAIL
> 4-point plan for approaching ACHIEVEMENT
To summarize, it goes like this....."15-steps in FAILING FORWARD"
1) Realise the major difference between average and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure
2) Learn a new definition of failure – what it is, and what it is not
3) Remove the ‘you’ from failure
4) Take action and reduce your fear
5) Change your response to failure by accepting responsibility
6) Don’t let the failure from outside get inside you
7) Say good-bye to yesterday
8) Change yourself, and your world changes
9) Get over yourself, and start giving yourself
10) Find the benefit in every bad experience
11) If at first you do succeed, try something harder
12) Learn from a bad experience and make it a good experience
13) Work on the weakness that weakens you
14) Understand there’s not much difference between failure and success
15) Get up, get over it, get going
Thanx MK....I truly enjoyed reading ur mail & am seriously thinkin on FAILING FORWARD!
